Rhinebeck Sweater: 38 Days and Counting

Rhinebeck is rapidly approaching!  I leave for the east coast in 38 days!  Last time I shared my progress  I was only a few rows beyond the sleeve divide.  I didn’t feel like I’d made much progress since then.  Much to my surprise, this happened when I tried it on just now…

WHOA!!  That’s nearly a sweater!!  Yay!  And it fits well!  I’m so pleased!  Partially because of my sweater progress but also because I’ve gotten my knitting time back!

I was in a bit of a funk, realizing my job was really cutting into my big sweater plans.  I was getting nervous about a hood, a zipper, pockets, sleeves…lots of details and time running out!  Well, worry no more!  I’m back to full time knitting!  My ‘new job’ was really contract work on a trial basis.  While my ‘boss’ loved me, her program wasn’t quite ready for the changes she was trying to implement.  I got the ‘we’re putting those tasks on hold’ call this morning.  They’ve still got some work they’d like me to do, but maybe that’ll be 15 hours a month.  I should probably be concerned about finding some real work but naaaaaah.  I’ve got way more important things to do (like turn Bill Murray into a sweater…more on that tomorrow!)

It’s only Tuesday…I think I can get to the bottom of my sweater by the end of the week!  I think tomorrow, if I can find time in my busy schedule, I’ll go zipper shopping!

  1. This sweater is going to be AWESOME!!! I’d say I was sorry to hear about your project getting put on hold…but knitting! Seriously though, that has to be the most frustrating thing about chem, it’s right up there with getting scooped.

    1. I’m just focusing on the positive, it paid my rent through the end of the year so There’s that! It was a desk job, I was not so keen on it. I think I’m ready to go back to the lab, maybe give some temp-to-hire work a try. Whatever…KNITTING!

      1. I’m with you! I miss the lab terribly and definitely don’t think I can do a desk job – not that I won’t if I have to, because bills. Fortunately, we’re okay for a bit so I can focus on my health and knitting of course :)
